India Nielsen (b. 1991 in London) studied at The Royal College of Art (2016-18) and Slade School of Fine Art (2012-16) in London. In 2024 Nielsen will have solo exhibitions at Soup gallery in London and Well Projects in Margate. For India Nielsen, paintings are functional, contradictory, difficult objects. Her generous use of imagery, colour, textures and forms is far away from minimalist gesture or a clinical gallery-ready edible. These works stand against the grain and against industry, institutionalised artworks that engage with real, deeply personal and rewarding making processes - hence no two works are the same.
